Eigenvalues of curvature, Lyapunov exponents and Harder–Narasimhan filtrations
Inspired by the Katz–Mazur theorem on crystalline cohomology and by the numerical experiments of Eskin, Kontsevich and Zorich, we conjecture that the polygon of the Lyapunov spectrum lies above (or on) the Harder–Narasimhan polygon of the Hodge bundle over any Teichmüller curve. We also discuss the connections between the two polygons and the integral of eigenvalues of the curvature of the Hodge bundle by using the works of Atiyah and Bott, Forni, and Möller. We obtain several applications to Teichmüller dynamics conditional on the conjecture.
